Choose the application that best suits your needs.
Although both WhatsApp and Telegram are instant messaging apps, differences in user experience and functionality are notable.
We have listed 6 differences that will help you to choose the best app for you:
1. Add contacts
To contact someone by WhatsApp must know the number of the person you want to chat with.
In the case of Telegram, you can contact someone searching by username or aliases.
2. Edit and delete messages:
Edit and delete functions will save you from typing a wrong message. Telegram allows you to edit and delete the message at any time.
While WhatsApp only allows you to delete messages for a limited period of time.
3. Security and Privacy:
Security in Telegram is a strong point and secret chats stand out. Chats are encrypted and they self-destruct after a period of time.
WhatsApp offers chat encryption and password access to the app.
4. File sharing:
Share photos, videos, files and documents from both applications. Telegram allows you to send up to 1.5 GB and WhatsApp maximum 100 MB.
5. Calls and video calls
Telegram supports video calls between 2 people. On the other hand, WhatsApp has a limit of 50 people.
6. Compatible devices
WhatsApp like Telegram are compatible on web, Android, iOS and PC. Telegram on computers does not require the mobile to be nearby.
